Wasn't this "National Happiness Day" or something.  That song "happiness is . . .

Austin, TX – March 1, 2014 – Steam3 (Science + Tech + Engineering + Arts + Math “cubed”) was the first public event of its kind to present a comprehensive look into the future of experiential learning. Steam3 provided an interactive stage for the exploration and demonstration of the fast emerging approaches, formats, technologies and learning models that will redefine education over the next decade.

In the Amazon and Kindle world we live in I was surprised to learn that a small independent book store would be opening in Austin.   Comic book store – sure but one that specializes in "visionary literature and poetry" – that got my attention. 

I think I am going to check out the "Irreverent Poets" hoping the event is BYOB – I might need a little drink to help me understand the poetry.

This little house in Austin is all hand made and there are over a dozen pictures of it in this article that Bobby Johns curated and shared on Facebook today.  You'll marvel at the attention to detail in this little handmade home.  

“We built our house with no money. It’s mainly built from reclaimed materials. Jesse sourced most things from within ten miles of here. He did all the work in between other jobs he had. That’s tapered off now, though- that was ages ago. Now Jesse works on other projects full time, and I just obsessively rearrange the furniture."

This is one of the best images:

I got an email and a phone call from some outfit in New York City that makes Superbowl commercials and they asked my permission to take some clips out of this video I made at the Texas – OU football game tailgate area.  (In the video, I went around and picked out the best BBQ rigs).  So I said sure, use whatever you want and give me a credit.  No idea where it will end up or what they'll use or if they'll pay me anything.

NextEcon Conference at the Scottish Rite Theater in Austin, Texas was a one-day hybrid conference meets open source dialogue session designed to engage and empower participants by marrying inspiring, informative keynotes with interactive, collaborative brainstorming techniques and work sessions.

The format was designed to both inform and catalyze “Next EConomists” in collectively exploring and creating actionable ideas to assist them in midwifing a thriving economy that better serves and sustains human needs.

There are a lot of free shows and parties during South by Southwest. But most times you have to be on the guest list to get in.But one Austin business is making money by making it easier for you to join the fun.

It’s no secret that once SXSW gets to town it’s easy to feel like you have too many options with over a thousand different events and parties going on. So two years ago Jennifer Sinski got an idea on how to cut down on the confusion. “In 2011, I realized there was a need for people to find SXSW unofficial parties in one place, without all the hassle,” said Sinski.

She and her friend Miles Dahmann created the site RSVPster.com . They individually go through the hundreds of SXSW events and RSVP party-goers to them all for $30 to $40. “In the first year we had about 300 people and I was completely overwhelmed,” said Sinski.

This year they’re expecting over 3,000 people to register. And it’s a lot of work for the company that only has 10 employees, but somehow they say they manage to get it all done. “We really want to uphold our promise to our customers,” said Dahmann. “It’s all about making sure they enjoy themselves here in Austin.”

RSVPster.com closes registration on March 3.

The Horseshoe Lounge on S Lamar, Austin, TX was the scene for +Jim Franklin's 70th Birthday Party. Jim Franklin (born 1943 in Galveston, Texas) is an artist, illustrator, and underground cartoonist best known for his poster art created for the Armadillo World Headquarters, a former Austin, Texas, music hall. He is also known for his detailed, surrealistic illustrations of armadillos.
Franklin studied at the San Francisco Art Institute.

Returning to Texas, he teamed with musicians and artists to open a psychedelic music hall in Austin, called the Vulcan Gas Company. Franklin lived in the club and was its primary poster artist for bands such as Shiva's Headband, 13th Floor Elevators, Conqueroo, and Canned Heat. At the Vulcan, Franklin and Gilbert Shelton worked together for the first time.

In a revealing interview with the Indian business newspaper Mint, Steve Grove, a Google+ exec who inks deals with content providers and influential figures, makes it clear that this is just the beginning. Grove tells Mint that “the reason for that is that Google+ is kind of like the next version of Google.”

It’s common currency in internet punditry circles that Google won the battle to dominate search while Facebook won the battle for social, and that Google+ is just a failed competitor to Facebook. But Google hasn’t given up. It has been clear for a while now that, to make up for the fact that not very many…

In the early days of the Internet in Austin, Texas I registered a domain name "austin.com" and hosted it at Real/Time Communications.  The untrustworthy system administrators, George Wenzel and Bob Gustwick, transferred the domain name without my knowledge or consent to Bob as they had root access to my server.  Then a few years ago, George had guilt pangs and sent me this message on LinkedIn.  I'm still pretty upset that they stole this domain name away from me.  If they were decent folks they would give it back.  I'm not making this up.  It pretty much tarnishes the austin.com domain forever that it was ill gotten like this.

"The Smartest Fitness Tracker Just Got Smarter" http://feedly.com/k/1grhE9N

​The Basis B1 band was already the brainiest fitness tracker out there. It would track your pulse, temperature, how much you sweat, and it was even smart enough to tell when you’ve gone to sleep and when you’ve woken up without you having to manually set anything. That’s a feature we loved when we tested it, so we’re psyched to see the watch bring that same kind of intelligence to working out.

We've had 5 podcasts at http://chromecastcast.com now on the chromecast and talked about every aspect of it.  And I secured about a dozen of them to start a chromecast development company.  And of all the nuggets of info out there, this may be the most impressive.

Google’s Chrome web browser and Chrome OS operating system come in stable, beta, and dev channels. And it turns out the company’s Chromecast media streaming device is no different.

Out of the box, the $35 media device runs the Chromecast stable software. But if you want to switch channels, developer Jay Lee has posted instructions.

chromecast beta channel

At this point the only thing that seems to change when you switch channels is that you can see the build number, IP address, and channel info on the home screen when you switch to the dev or beta channel.

Typically Google rolls out experimental features to the dev channel first, and then makes them available in the beta and eventually stable channels once they’re a little more fool-proof.

In other words, switching to one of these channels is likely to introduce bugs — but it might also give you an early look at upcoming features.

It’s interesting that Google is taking a Chrome-like approach to channels for the Chromecast. While the company says it runs a modified version of Chrome OS, under the hood it actually seems to be running a modified version of Android which boots the Chrome web browser. Ultimately I guess it depends on how you define Chrome OS.

Keep in mind though, Google doesn’t make it easy to switch channels on the Chromecast. Lee’s instructions involve rooting your device, connecting to it over telnet, and running a series of commands which will reset your device and remove root access. There’s no guarantee you won’t break your device in the process.

On the other hand, a replacement will only cost you $35.
